Walnut Dining Table

Veneering has a bad reputation, considered by many to be a cheap and inferior alternative to solid wood.

This bad press hasn’t always been unfounded but using modern materials and adhesives with beautiful real wood veneers can be the only way of achieving the required effect without wasting criminal quantities of timber.

This simple dining table was designed in response to demand for a piece that is both a sensible daily use item of furniture and also a dining table for larger groups.

The fold away design saves the need for having to store leaves or having a permanent 10-12 seat table in your dining room.
